This mated pair of Bald Eagles has a nest in the suburbs north of Denver, Colorado. Oftentimes they can be seen hanging around a wastewater treatment plant nearby.
On this day they were initially perched on a guard rail that goes around the banks of the pond and when I had just about given up on getting flight shots, the female took to the air.
I managed to capture some nice shots of the launch, aided by the fact it was windy so she couldn’t depart too fast.
